For the latest feature I hit up the Subreachers, a duo coming out of Belgium.  Bass heavy productions are coming out with increasing frequency, what separates the wheat from the chaff is the ability to keep both the groove and intensity flowing. Subreachers nail it consistently.  Listen above for their guest mix on the radio, or read below for a brief interview.

SNF: Lets start off with a bit about yourselves – how it is there in Belgium,
musically and otherwise?

Subreachers: Matthias and me knew each other from back in the highschool days. We both dropped out (eventually getting our degrees in an other way :p) but lost touch with each other for a few years. Until we met back and found out that we were both into dubstep. It wasn’t long before we decided to have a go at producing. We made some tunes and sent them to the national alternative radiostation. Surprisingly one of them got picked and got a feature on the show. That’s were we started to do the Subreachers thing and got more focused on producing and dj’ing. Belgium has a good healthy scene but as everywhere the majority of the partys / kids are all about the heavy hitting dancefloor bombs. But it’s cool because there are some smaller scale promotors who do deep end nights and aren’t afraid to mix it up with a techno headliner etc. Otherwise Belgium is a nice country to live in apart from being pretty expensive, it’s all good.

SNF: What was your path to finding electronic music and why did you decide to
start making it?

Tim: I found out pretty quickly about electronic music through my dads record collection which spans from 1970’s disco classic to 1990 house and techno classics. I started fooling around with the decks at a pretty young age and always kept my interest in music and discovering new music and styles. I decided i’d have a go at making something of myself at 19 years of age. I was big into disco and disco edits, so i started fiddling around with some audio software and made my own edits, mostly obscure stuff that i reworked and made dub version of. I still have all these tracks so if any label is interested :p.

Matthias: I listened to all kinds of genres when I was a teenager, from trance at young age to heavy metal some years later. My dad is a musician too, so logically I started playing piano when I was 7 or 8. When I was 16 I got into drum & bass & a few months later I bought myself some decks & started dj’ing. Then later on when I discovered dubstep I knew this was the genre I was waiting for. My genre. When I met Tim again after school we both started producing in ableton & so it started. When I hear the stuff I made like 2 years ago it’s so funny.. I’m glad we evolved a lot now.

SNF: Where do you seek inspiration for your productions?

Subreachers: I think it varies from time to time. We go trough phases. We love so much music that we get inspired by alot of different stuff. But to give you an idea our inspirations go from jungle to detroit techno to ambient, film music, field recordings, oldschool electro and so on.

SNF: Who’s on your radar now that’s making high quality music?

Subreachers: We love alot of producers and there are a few so here’s the namedrop: Wachs lyrical, Jazzy Jazzy, Valor, Riskotheque, Von D, Lurka,
Submerse, Resketch, XI, DFRNT, Ruckspin,  .. sorry for anyone we forgot the mention, you’re all large !

SNF: What plans do you have for the future?

Subreachers: Plans for the future are, keep on making music and touring alot, keep
doing our thing and enjoying it.

SNF: What should we be looking out for?

Subreachers: We’ve got some upcoming releases, there’s a remix we did for DFNRT coming out on Echodub, Cd , Digi + Double pack on live beyond, keep your eyes open for that one ! should be dropping mid september, there’s some dnb material coming on a very big label, all we can say is keep your eyes open ;-)

Steppin into Tomorrow with SNFThis one on the darker side of things for the first half and then into the light in the second bit.  New bits inside from Snipaz, FBOM, BetaSP & Mite, and more.  More technical issues on the outro of this one, sorry for the abrupt ending, but the good news that I think I’ve figured out the source :)   For those using USB soundcards, I wouldn’t recommend connecting them via a USB hub, or at least as cheap of a USB hub as I’m currently using  :)   Hopefully all worked out by next time.

Dubstepped Radio 006 featuring Cosmic Revenge


Dubstepped RadioFeatured alongside tons of fresh unreleased tracks is San Francisco bay area producer Cosmic Revenge.  This episode has all sorts of music, from deep dub techno influenced tracks, to heavy wobbly rhythms, to the future of garage, and everything in between.  Some of these tracks are even available for free download, check the links in the tracklist for info.

I changed the format again this time, strictly music inside with literally no talking.  For all info on the shows check this site, and for info on the individual tracks check the enhanced podcast in m4a format with embedded tracklist & cover art. I talk over tracks on my Dubstep.FM radio show, so I’m going to keep this podcast strictly music now.

Big thanks to Sam Supa @ Brap Dem, J. Rogers @ Blipswitch, Jus Wan, DJG, Sines, Cosmic Revenge, Distal, FBOM, Bakir, Dubsworth, Zeno, and everyone else that sends me tunes. It makes this possible.

Introducing: Cosmic Revenge

Cosmic Revenge first made it into my eardrums with his recent release on Kursed and his newer work is out of this world.  The sounds he makes aren’t easily categorized, maybe dubstep, maybe garage, I like robot R&B personally.  He’s got a release coming soon on Whistla’s label L2S Recordings that’s definitely worth looking into, should be out sometime soon.  Cosmic Revenge has many musical influences which come across in his productions, making the end product something unique.

SNF: To set it off, where are you located and what should people know about you?
Cosmic Revenge: I’m from this little town about 40 minutes east of San Francisco called Pittsburg. There’s absolutely nothing going on this town though – its probably most well known for being the end of the line for BART in the East Bay – very exciting, I know. When I’m not at home working on music I’m usually in Pleasant Hill at Diablo Valley College, kickin’ it at my friends house in Lafayette, or out in the city getting my groove on at a club. What people should know about me… I’m obsessed with this little hole in the wall chinese restaurant called China City out in Antioch that has the best Mongolian Beef I’ve ever had, I have a Fat Tire bar light in my room to use instead of a lamp, I’m a huge fan of Stanley Kubrick, I hate Taylor Swift, and I listen to 98.1 Kiss FM because my cd player in my car is busted.

S: The thing that drew me to your music was its soulful, almost R&B feel especially on trackslike “Late Nights” and “Baroness,” what influences you musically?

CR: Yeah Late Nights came about from me sampling a Zapp song, I can’t remember which one it is exactly but I just started slicing and dicing until I got some pieces I liked and then started adding drums and a bassline to it.  Baroness came from me sampling some vocals and wanting to create a “lounge” style bassline along the lines of Thievery Corporation, Massive Attack, and Air. I also wanted it to be almost two songs in one, hence the second part of the song takes on a 2 step/garage rhythm.

I listen to almost every style of music you can imagine. I’m into alot of shoegaze stuff such as Slowdive, Jesus and Mary Chain, M83, Jesu, and My Bloody Valentine. I am in love with bluegrass and alternative country such as Old Crow Medicine Show, Gillian Welch, Emmylou Harris, and Ryan Adams. I learned guitar after getting into metal bands such as Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Suffocation, and Cryptopsy. I grew up in high school seeing hardcore, punk, and crust bands come through the Pound (RIP) in San Francisco and Berkeley’s 924 Gilman seeing bands like Killing the dream, Go It Alone, Verse, Modern Life is War, Paint it Black, Witch Hunt, Behind Enemy Lines, and my personal favorite, the apocalyptic thrash/d-beat legends known as Tragedy.

In high school I also started exploring hip hop and got into Masta Ace and his amazing concept album A Long Hot Summer. After that show I got into Jeru the Damaja, ATCQ, Nas, Mobb Deep, Wu Tang, Brother Ali, Little Brother, Freddie Foxxx, and a bunch more that I could talk about all day.  I got really into some of the great producers such as RZA, J Dilla, Pete Rock, 9th Wonder, and was obsessed with their manipulation of vocal samples and old soul records in their beats. I then got a copy of DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing and still remember the feeling I had when I got through most of the album.  It was pure bliss, the way he chopped up drums, the layering of string samples to give it atmosphere, the haunting vocals… everything about it inspired me to save up and buy Pro Tools and an Mbox to start making beats.

From there I discovered Portishead and alot of music from what many people refer to as the Bristol Sound.  I saw Portishead in 2008 at Coachella and I can safely say that was one of the best performances I have ever seen in my life.  For me, Portishead and Massive Attack are the ideal bands. They blend soul, hip hop, electronica, and dub into this emotionally hazy mixture that I can only describe as perfection. Along with getting into alot of the Bristol Sound, I started listening to Leftfield and Underworld and fell in love with dance music.

I liked how there was so much diversity to be found within electronic dance music, and I quickly became accustomed to many styles. I liked the minimal side of techno and house with detroit style strings and pads, I liked the complexity of alot of the breaks mixed with the heavy dub styled basslines in jungle, I liked the use of sampling old funk and disco records in alot of Daft Punk tunes, and I just loved the energy an electronic dance artist would bring to a big soundsystem. Most importantly though, I loved how it moved me. There’s nothing in life like the feeling of a 20,000 + watt system pumping out the bassline to your favorite song while you get down to the music. I know alot of people say this, but it really can be a spiritual experience. It’s really meditative, which leads me to what brought me to dubstep.  SNF: Same!!!!

I got into dubstep after it was already established, but I was introduced to it with artists like Loefah, Mala, Skream, Distance, Pinch, and Shackleton. I was immediately into it – dark, eerie, atmospheric, influenced by minimal techno, heavy dub, all put together with a shuffled beat and the fattest sub bass I had ever heard. How could anyone NOT like this? As I dug deeper with this new scene of music I was introduced to the origins of dubstep with garage and 2 step artists and quickly fell in love with the 2 step beat. I started listening to El-B, MJ Cole, Burial, Synkro, and alot of stuff being played on Sub.FM and mixes I would find on the dubstepforum. Ever since then, I’ve found that garage beats are some of the most fun to make and people have been feeling some of my stuff so I’m going to keep shufflin’ those hi hats!

S: Lots of your music uses a garage beat but also is a new direction from a lot of garage I’ve heard, would you call it future garage, garage, dubstep, robot R&B?

CR: Personally I would just call it Garage, or New Skool Garage, but I don’t really care what its called to be honest. Like I said, I just really like the loose format of garage and 2 step beats. I like the swing and how open it is to throw in any kind of percussion. I have alot of fun programming and sampling hi hats, and misc. percussion like bongos, rim shots, etc.

S: Do you consider what genre your music fits into when you’re making it?

CR: I like to use a 2 step beat as a foundation and then just do whatever I feel like on top of it. Some days I’ll want to have a deep techno feel over it, some days I’ll want a juke house feel over it, some days I’ll want a house feel to it. That’s what I like about the beat – it gives you a foundation for alot of experimentation. The things I mostly consider when making a tune are: can you dance to it, bass pressure, and is it catchy. Other than that, I pretty much just go in the zone and start making music. I usually feel pretty confident to show my stuff to people in the dubstep/garage scene because there is so much experimentation and progression going on out there that alot of people that support the scene are really open to new ideas.

S: Whistla plays a lot of your music on his Sub.FM show and you have a release forthcoming on his label L2S, how’d you get connected being halfway around the world from each other?

CR: Yeah, I’d like say to thanks to Whistla for his support, its meant alot to me. He contacted me through myspace, I think he just heard my tunes on my page or on the forums and said he was really feelin’ the 2 step vibes and wanted to do a release. Obviously, I was really excited and sent him over some tunes to get mastered. I’m really into his vision for garage with the L2S label, he recently put out this tune 2RU Groove by Submerse that I really can’t get enough of. Its a four to floor garage tune that honestly sounds like something Todd Edwards made. I feel really honored to be a part of this label.

S: Who’s doing it for you musically currently?

CR: Right now I’m really into Submerse, Littlefoot, KingThing, Gon, M2J, Floating Points, RSD, Kryptic Minds, Distal, Jus Wan, DJG, Cyrus, most everyone in the Hyperdub camp, Loops Haunt, Buraka Som Sistema, Boys Noize, FBOM, Hudson Mohawke, Modeselektor, Guido, Joker, Gemmy, Vishnu, Hot City… damn there’s really too many to name. This scene is putting out some of the most exciting music I’ve heard in years. Also, Shackleton’s latest release is absolutely amazing. Also this producer Trey Runyan, aka “Tre-Dog” or “Runyan Rings” is doing some off the wall psychedelic/noise beats that I’m really into. He has a tune called “Ben Potter Grows Real Legs” or something weird like that and it is just out of this world. Lastly, VVV and KYEO are both doing some futuristic/outerspace tunes that I have been jamming on lately so watch out for them!

S: What things are on the horizon?

CR: I’m working on alot of new stuff, some garage, some really heavy house tunes that pay homage to 90’s rave, some roots influenced dub, some soulful/experimental hip hop, and a few remixes I’m working on for some people. Late Nights and this rhythmic house tune I did called River of Diamonds are going to be put out on vinyl with this new label out of LA called Baseball Records. It should be out sometime early next year, we’re just waiting for remixes from Bok Bok and Jam City. I’ve recently been contacted by Fortified Audio and we’re working on putting out an EP on vinyl that will include my tunes Mutations and Street Bass along with several others. I’m really excited to be putting my music out with this label, because they just put out one of my favorite tunes of the year by this producer named Loops Haunt. The tune is called Rubber Sun Grenade, check him out if you haven’t heard http://www.myspace.com/loopshaunt. So look out for the releases on Fortified and Baseball Records early next year and also the L2S release slated for late December (next month).
In the meantime I have alot of songs I’m working on that I might be giving out, so just keep checking my myspace at www.myspace.com/cosmicrevengedub or my soundcloud at http://soundcloud.com/cosmic-revenge I’m also beginning to work on a downbeat/shoegaze/trip hop album with my buddy Eric that I think will blow minds, but its going to be made over the next two years or so. If you took the time to read all of this, I really appreciate it and I hope I didn’t bore you too badly! Much thanks to Stephen here at dubstepped.net for his support and for pushing the deeper side of things on his radio show “Steppin into Tomorrow” on Dubstep.FM
SNF: Thanks!
